Mindfulness And Meditation To Become Part Of The Curriculum In 370 Schools In England


Children in many schools in England will have the ability to learn methods for muscle alleviation, breathing techniques for mindfulness and will learn how to meditate. Until 2021, the British government will be planning this program under a mental health study.

When children aren’t able to find a proper way to express their feelings, they can start kicking and screaming. Such things happen when they don’t understand what they are dealing with.

If a child is coping with a new and complex emotion for the first time, it is more likely to develop tantrums.

To increase the students’ mental health, schools in England start to focus on teaching mindfulness and meditation in the classroom.

Also, secondary school students will be taught about awareness and how to add it up in their lives.

The British government will be charging this program until 2021.

According to the National Health Service (NHS), 1 in 8 children in the UK has mental disorders. Still, many children show signs of early depression and anxiety.

Regardless of these results, not many children with mental issues can have the right treatment.

Mindfulness as a subject is getting popular among other schools, besides schools in the UK. As an example, a school in Baltimore in 2016 changed detention and turned it into a place where the children could practice breathing and exercise.

With these methods, students can remain calm and can focus on their lectures.
